Extract

A series of papers looking at the work of the walk-in psychiatric emergency service based at the Maudsley Hospital have been reported in the literature (Lim, 1983; Mindham et al, 1973; Brothwood, 1965). This clinic was established in 1952 and is one of the oldest in Europe. A similar clinic the Emergency Assessment Clinic (EAC) was introduced to Whitchurch Hospital, Cardiff in 1970.
